Cardiff Language and the Law (CALL)
Cardiff Language and Law (CaLL) is both a research group and a research network. As a research group, it is located in the Centre for Language and Communication Research in the School of English, Communication and Philosophy of Cardiff University. It has a strong tradition in language and law research and runs a well-established MA in Forensic Linguistics as well as supervising students on language and law topics. As a research network, it provides a focus for anyone working at the interface between language/communication and the law to explore and discuss ideas.
Members are interested in collaborating with researchers in other Schools within Cardiff and those at other institutions working in the field of language and law, broadly conceived. They aim more generally to facilitate, encourage and undertake collaborative research between legal practitioners so they are interested, too, in collaborating with those who work in legal settings of any sort.
To this end, reading groups are held every few weeks during term time and coordinate research talks, projects and events.
